I do not have admin status and do not see "Blocks" under Patron Main as a Status option. Not sure I understand the advantage to "Blocks" ( as previously discussed)

Blocks are not a main status option; they are added or removed on the Blocks tab. The main advantage is that blocks can be given an expiration date, and that they are not communicated to PIMMS (so a short-term hold does not effect a patron's magazines). The full details are written up in the tutorial; it should help you understand the difference between blocks and changing a patron's main status.

For follow-up questions, please reply to the existing topic, rather than creating a new one. That will keep all of the related questions and answers together in one place.
